A bit about Nederlog and my sites

This is just a brief Nederlog about Nederlog and the site, since I am a bit fed up with the subject of dr. Mikovits for the moment, and indeed there also is not much to add, today. But there are two things though I should add on that subject:

I forgot yesterday to provide the link to David Tuller's article in the New York Times, so here it is (again, for I also repaired it in yesterday's text):

        - Fatigue Syndrome Study Is Retracted by Journal

And Cort Johnson who owns Phoenix Rising yesterday published an article there summing up a fair amount. I give the full title and the link:

- WPI Wins Lawsuit/Science Retracts XMRV Paper
   /Mikovits Back to Work on XMRV

It's mostly about dr. Mikovits's court cases and the retraction of her and Lombardi's et al Science paper and seems fair to me, if not very friendly to her.

Anyway... enough of that, for the moment, followed by just a little about Nederlog and my site:

The last two years Nederlog has been almost wholly in English, and not in Dutch, as originally planned in January 2006, and as it mostly was the first four years (and the preceding two with Nedernieuws).

The reason is mostly the link posited in 2009 in that now retracted Science article joined to the fact that most I could find about it is in English. Also, I briefly joined Phoenix Rising as a member, that I soon left, seeing Bob and his ilk set the tone and much of the content of the Phoenix Forums as regards what his manner of retard thinks science should be, and others got no fair hearing but instead considerable amounts of verbal discrimination, and I also even more briefly joined the MECFS-forums, where I was cast out from after frankly quoting and discussing someone writing there loads of total baloney, in part inspired by madness and in part by neo-nazi style postures, which is what Patricia Carter and CFS_Since_1998 want to see, from their actions and ommisions, rather than sound science and rational thinking, as they have also shown ever since, for which reason their forums are known by people who do know science and who don't have ME/CFS as "the forum of the crazies". (*)

This explains why I wrote Nederlog of 2010 mostly in English. Something similar applies to Nederlog of 2011, but there are more reasons, including my being thoroughly sickened by the political situation in Holland, a country I very much regret having remigrated to in 1977 from Norway, since it turned out to be the heaven for the drugsmafia, the heaven of drugscorrupt bureaucrats, the walhalla of pseudo-intellectual impostors, and a ready and proud feeding ground for populist neo-nazis, what with a degenerate miseducation for nearly all, since over four decades now, while all Dutchmen who went to school or university since the 1970ies have been undereducated and miseducated in the name of universal human equivalence of all to all.

Then again, there is little or no planning of Nederlog, and I write it nearly always spontaneously and fast, and about a subject that I am then and there concerned about or interested in.

In 2011, most of my attention of what I did on my sites - there are two, one in Holland, one in Denmark, that are intended to show the same content - indeed as was the case in 2010, went to  Nederlog. Unlike earlier years, all changes I made to the site (of some importance: I do not administrate all spelling errors I correct) have in 2011 been carefully administrated in

- New on the site in English

In earlier years, I used several pairs of files, in Dutch and English, to do the same, but this got to feel a bit fussy and formal, and the format I have used now I find more pleasant and clearer. Also, it produces a kind of commented analytical index of contents, as it were, of its own, and gives a good survey of what was added and changed, with brief explanations as well.

Also, I made this month quite a few changes in backgrounds (and have to do more) and had occasion to look into the above linked index and was pleased that I did write more about philosophy in 2011 than I had realized - which I like, because that's what I am, in the first place: A philosopher, and a much discriminated one: Discriminated for being ill with a medically unexplained disease; discriminated  because I sproke the truth about the destruction of the Dutch schools and education as it happened, for which reason I was the only Dutchman to be removed from a Dutch university since Nazis ruled Holland; discriminated for having the courage of protesting agains the Amsterdam drugs mafia that threatened to murder me and attempted to gas me, a drugs mafia that has been protected in Amsterdam now by mayors, aldermen, district attorneys, bureaucrats, ombudsmen, municipal police, lawyers, and many more for decades, which no Dutchman investigates or feel concerned about, because the Dutch mafia is dangerous and the illegal profits enormous; and discriminated for daring to speak the truth to and about Amsterdam bureaucrats, many of whom are paid both from the taxes and by the mafia, and most of whom are simply corrupt willing helpmeets of the local drugsmafia they help protect. (**)

But as I said: I was pleased to find I wrote more about philosophy and related subjects this year than I had thought, and I do plan on making an analytical index of subjects I wrote about this year, and will try to do more of the same the next year, since I do plan to write less about ME/CFS.

(*) It has been suggested that since a brief while ago, after Gerwyn and his Geroupies started a third forum, the Carter_Since forum is changing, but I cannot even reply "I'll believe it if I see it", for according to Patricia Carter and the anonymous braveheart Since, I am unfit to even ever see their forums, including their slander of me, and their slaughter of real science, all supposedly in the name of patients with ME like myself. Which is a false, dishonest and immoral lie: These people have not worked for me or ME, but against me and against the true interests of patients with ME.

(**) Every year, since decades, several tens of billions of euros and dollars of illegal drugs, hard and soft drugs alike, have been turned over in Holland with active, eagerly willing, protection and proud toleration by Dutch mayors, policemen, parliamentarians, ministers and district attorneys, about which Dutchmen claim that none of them can possibly be corrupt, namely according to themselves and their journalist friends. Very few Dutchmen see any problem in the toleration and protection of the drugsmafia since 1969; NO Dutch judge has ever protested against this corruption of the Dutch laws and the Dutch bureaucracy and the Dutch politicians.

The probable reason is that most Dutchmen just don't care who dies, who gets poisoned, who gets gassed, who gets rich by helping the mafia, as long as they prosper themselves, while the Dutch courts are filled with careerists from the Dutch political parties, who are there to protect their own political parties and comrades, rather than help maintain the Dutch laws, that forbid dealing in drugs, or pleading that Dutch laws that cannot be maintained be given up, and that drugs should be legalized rather than simultaneously criminalized while the Dutch criminals are protected by the Dutch courts, the Dutch  judges, the Dutch political elite and the Dutch bureaucracy.

Indeed, had it been otherwise, I would have been helped in Amsterdam. I wasn't helped, because I insisted on having my legal rights, and I have no friends with political power. And yes, the last link explains most of why I did as I did, and spoke and wrote as I spoke and wrote: My family and I are not quite the same as most Dutchmen, who are natural born collaborators, nazis, drugsdealers, conformists or morons. (For Dutchies: See De Aabb-mensen 0: Mijn menselijke rechten: I asked help and protection from natural born criminals, natural born fascist terrorists, who could get to be major or aldermen in Amsterdam because they are natural born criminals and natural born fascist terrorists.

A modern democracy like the Dutch one is a system where a majority of morons have been given the right to elect which plausible criminals may rule them in the name of which lies and bullshit.

Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.
